System Copy of our Production Server using orabrcopy method.



We are planning to do a System Copy (Homogeneous) of our Production Server using orabrcopy method.

( Windows / Oracle )

But as the Production Server Java Version is below 1.4.1, Orabrcopy could not be executed. As it is the Production Server, we couldnot install the latest version of JAVA.

As per the planned downtime of the Production Server, we have copied all the database folders. ( say 9th of August)

but we could not create the control , trace, init<sid>.ora files using ORABRCOPY.. during offline database copy.

After the Offline copy of the Database, the system is started up and running with no issues. Now the problem is that we couldnot execute Orabrcopy and we dont have the control, traces and init<sid>.ora.

I need answers for 2 questions :

1. Is there any other method or alternative to orabrcopy, so that we can create the control , trace, and init<sid>.ora files now.

2. If we create the control trace files now ( 13th of August ) can we use the offline backup that we took on (9th of August) to perform a System Copy..

Please let me know if you need any more information ..

Need your advice..

Thanks and Regards
